.OUTLOOK (DAYS 3-5)...ISOLATED TO SCATTERED EARLY MORNING SHOWERS
WILL BE POSSIBLE ALONG AREA BEACHES NEARLY EACH MORNING...WITH DRY
CONDITIONS PREVAILING DURING MOST OF THE DAYLIGHT HOURS. HOT AND
HUMID CONDITIONS ARE LIKELY OVER THE UPCOMING LABOR DAY WEEKEND
WITH HIGHS AROUND 90 AND LOWS AROUND 80. A WEAK TO MODERATE
ONSHORE FLOW WILL OCCUR...WITH THE STRONGEST WIND SPEEDS OCCURRING
DURING THE AFTERNOON AND EVENING HOURS. THE RIP CURRENT RISK MAY
BECOME ELEVATED AT TIMES LATE THIS WEEK AND OVER THE WEEKEND.


* A LOW RISK OF RIP CURRENTS MEANS THAT ANY RIP CURRENTS THAT DO
  FORM ARE LIKELY TO BE WEAK BUT STILL MAY POSE A DANGER TO POOR
  SWIMMERS. RESEARCH HAS SHOWN RIP CURRENTS ARE TYPICALLY MORE
  FREQUENT IN THE VICINITY OF JETTIES...INLETS...AND PIERS AND
  THESE CAN BE QUITE STRONG ON DAYS WHERE THE OVERALL RIP CURRENT
  THREAT IS LOW...ESPECIALLY IF STRONG SOUTHERLY OR NORTHEASTERLY
  WINDS EXIST.

* WAVE HEIGHT AND PERIOD FORECASTS ARE REPRESENTATIVE OF DEEP OCEAN
  WAVES OVER THE OFFSHORE WATERS...NOT SURF CONDITIONS.
